The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is easily one of the most hyped upcoming EVs, but when can we expect to see it in dealerships?
Hyundai sent shockwaves throughout the auto industry back in February when the production Ioniq 5 was unveiled. Here was a practical crossover that had great stats, retro looks and all the benefits of coming from one of the world’s most reliable, trusted manufacturers. The excitement and hype was and still is palpable.
So, when will the Ioniq 5 actually arrive? Well, for those of you in the US Hyundai is currently aiming for an October release date. Production meanwhile is set for August.
A number of different Ioniq 5 variants will be sold in the US market, as illustrated above. Unlike in Europe however, only one battery pack will be available – the larger 77.4kWh unit. Range is up to 300 miles per charge in RWD guise according to Hyundai. AWD versions will have extra power (up to 320hp) but marginally less range.
US Ioniq 5 pricing is still unknown, however a base point of around $40,000 before incentives is a solid estimate. Those interested in an Ioniq 5 can reserve one today for only $100.
